This happened to me today except when they tried to add there bank information to my account…that’s when I knew this was a scam because they were trying to give me a $50 bonus.

I was scammed as a passenger with Lyft. My card was added to accounts with the people named Euphoric, Dick, Him, and Amex. The rides were a total of over $1200 all back to back. One on the rides was over $400. Lyft is trying to say they are people I know. Who has the name Amex?? I don't know these people and the accounts are obviously fake. But the Lyft support team is too dumb to see this. I asked support for details on where the rides happened and to check what drivers are associated. Lyft has failed to be of any help to me so my bank can give me back my money. I'm so disappointed with Lyft. I used to be a driver for them but I'll never recommend anyone to them to be a passenger or driver. They have horrible support service.

This happened to me. I got stung once and cancelled the second time it happened. The first time I got taken for $1300. UBER was wonderful. They stood by me and replaced the funds. While at times I can be critical of UBER, I have to say that they were wonderful this time. Thank you.

I got that lol I laughed at them but I think it's inside job because I tried calling Uber while I have the trip and no one picks up they put the pick up at a place you can't get to or it's closed so you can't get the ride no show fee.

I got one of these a few years ago. Luckily because I had watched videos, and it seemed fishy, I called Uber support through the app and was told it was not real. It said it was an Uber VIP

LOL. A Dignatary or Important Person will have a Full Security Detail and Private Vehicles. Taking an Uber or Lyft would be Beneath Them.

Why would Lyft or Uber need get your account information? They already know it right? Think people!

Also, if they put their bank account in to steal your money, then doesn't that mean that it would be extremely easy to catch them? Each theft is considered.. theft (grand if over $600-1000) and two counts of wire fraud EACH occurrence. One for the phone and another for the bank transfer.

Here’s a way to scam a scammer, go to the location, keep your doors lock, and wait for the wait time to go to 0 and charge them the cancellation fee.

It’s difficult enough to deal with real Uber support. I’ve been trying to get my for hire permit renewed in the Seattle area since May. They need to open the hubs back up.

They try to get you on the phone. Never send a rider your personal phone number.

They ask you to confirm a code that they "are sending you". In actuality, the code is generated when someone tries to access one of your accounts from an unknown source. If you give them the code, you are giving them access to everything in that account. On a driver account, that includes your pay. Anything not payed out they can take. Anything you want after that, if you don't get control of your accounts back, they can take.

They will go after your email as well. They will use readily available information to make you believe them. Then get more information from you as they gain access, to get even more information and your money.

Uber and lyft support can help a bit. Bit you are your first line of defense. Remember, uber and lyft are not trying to give away money. If it sounds to good to be true, it is. Only communicate with uber and lyft through the proper channels. Never through the rider communication. That is the biggest sign of a scam. The rider is not the company you work for.
